Political decisions and the news coverage of them write off large groups of people, usually the most marginalized. I learned that growing up in rural Oregon and it was further solidified in my years as a grassroots organizer for environmental justice. 

I take the most impactful stories happening in the Northwest -- the stuff people really need to know about -- and make them accessible (free on the internet in language we all understand) and fun (I'm hilarious, trust me). And while it's free to watch, it's not free to make. It takes hours of time, skill, research, and talent.

People pay for news subscriptions and they pay for art, so why not pay for both in one package?
$0 of $250 per month
When I reach $250 each month, I'll do the first on-location coverage of a Northwest issue/solution because I'll be able to afford to travel there!
